Ingredient Notes

Avocado: Mmmmmm – we love avocados. Not only do they contain high levels of healthy, beneficial fats, which can help a person feel fuller between meals, they are so versatile and the perfect addition to sandwiches, salads, dressings and sauces.

Eggs: Everyone has their favourite way they like their eggs – how do you like them? Packed with around 6 grams of protein per egg, for this breakfast sandwich recipe I recommend sunny side up or over easy.
